Time for this board to fade away?

Post by des fisher »

Before the evil Facebook took over the world this board did useful work but maybe the time has come for it to fade away?

Problems associated with it are:
  • to prevent malicious software user registrations the protection has to be so strong it's almost impossible for new users to register,
  • software upgrades are often irritatingly time consuming and need fault finding,
  • topics being auto-deleted to prevent the database becoming enormous cause broken links on the main site which need to be fixed, and
  • when a user visits a topic there's no clear path back to the main site.
So I'm proposing to make three new pages on the main site: Andrea's Beat, What's On and House Sales and sadly let this board wither away ...

... thanks, it's been fun.
